Well Duh!!!!!!! Yea the its been milled off but the other codes are period correct for a Vette. Since material was removed you would assume that the shims were to get the proper clearance to keep the valves from striking the top of the pistons. I mean I know its been a lot of years since I did a motor but I dont think Ive forgotten everything. He had misplaced the receipts where he had the motor work done. Had a new crank, cam, rods and pistons put in it when it was done and what sounds and feels to be a pretty hefty cam. Im just looking at aftermarket heads and intake and was wondering if anyone could tell me how to measure how much had been removed when it was decked. That much I,ve forgotten..............
